    Looks like a Flowmaster 80 to me. I believe what you're seeing coming out of it are pieces of the muffler itself, see as how my old one blew a hole in the side 3 months after my Mac headers went on.

    it looks like little pebbles and dust from the ground flyin at the camera. i relaly like that sound...

    idk why, but i think a nice loud turbo would sound really nice with that muffler.

    well yea a blower sounds amazing. i just think a high boost turbo sound along with that tone of muffler would go perfectly together. idk why, its just what i thought about when i heard it.

    i care just as much about sound as performance as gay as that is

    If you want it louder either get some long tube headers and an ory or get a louder catback like the Loudmouth. If you like it how it is than leave it alone.

    yea i like the tone so i would keep the muffler but make it louder by either removing the cat (get an ory) and/or long tube headers

    or ucan jsut hollow out a cat

    dont hollow out perfectly good cats, plus is been proven that it doesnt help exhaust flow, get a real off road pipe and do it right if you want to get rid of cats. but as stated, to make that muffler louder go with an offroad pipe and/or some long tubes. it amplify that tone a bit.

    Those particles are shavings from your freshly ported heads. Next time blow them off with compressed air.
